Manually Calibrating the Printer

It is recommended that you calibrate the printer manually when using pre-printed media or if the printer will not correctly auto-calibrate when you run a SmartCal procedure as described in Running a SmartCal Media Calibration.
Make sure media is loaded. A good common label size is 4 by 6 inches.
  1. Turn printer power ON.
  2. Send this command to the printer:
    ! U1 do "ezpl.manual_calibration" ""
The printer will set the media sensor for the label backing in use. When this adjustment is complete, the printer will auto-feed the media roll until a label is positioned at the printhead. It will then print a profile of the media sensor settings (similar to the one shown here). When done, the printer will save the new settings in memory. It is now ready for normal operation.
